[Don't you love it when someone begins an entire conversation as if she's picking up where she left off...]
So, I ordered my lunch from my favorite place. [yum] They know I like my burrito "extra crispy" so they usually leave it on the grille till I arrive. I thought I'd get two things done at once by popping into the bank across the parking lot to make a deposit. There was a bit of a line and I didn't need to speak to a teller so I circled the building looking for the ATM. Huh? No ATM?
It was only a few minutes till I was next in line for a teller. The customer ahead of me, nice-as-can-be older woman, cashed a hundred-dollar check, and at the last moment decided to put fifty of it into her account. Transaction complete, she began to leave but made another quick-decision and asked to change her fifty-dollar bill into two 20s and a 10.
Usually at this point I'd be huffing and shifting my weight, rolling my eyes and grunting [I have this really bad habit of talking to myself - full-on conversations] But this time, all of the sudden, I burst out in laughter! I couldn't help it. There I was, laughing and commenting...
Next she wanted twenty dollars in singles. ["Of course! Hahaaa..."] When she saw that the singles were "crisp and new" she wanted another twenty ["Why not? Heheee..."] Throwing caution to the wind, she put up her final ten dollar bill for trade. ["Bahahaaa"] The line was starting to circle the ropes behind me. I'm sure I distracted everyone from the frustration because all eyes were on me as I was falling over, slapping my knees in laughter.
The customer next to her was replacing his ATM card, talking to managers and signing papers. He finished before her! When I walked up to that teller, he was laughing [I think at me] and I said, "I just want to make a deposit." He said, "Don't forget, you can always use the ATM." ::thud:: Apparently I only circled nine-tenths of the building!
Needless to say, my burrito is extra-extra crispy!
